The addition of such an esteemed panel of advisors including cryptocurrency heavyweights like David Drake and Petter Sehlin, as well as experts like the team behind AllCoinWiki, is a significant endorsement to the Crowd Genie business as well as the investment merits of Crowd Genie’s coins. I am confident that the credibility, expertise and network they lend to Crowd Genie will make the ICO a success.”

The platform has been operational for approximately 20 months. Crowd Genie has a track record of full repayments with no defaults since inception.
